House rules
The host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
You have the entire 2nd floor of a large 3 story home at the north end of the Village. 2 Bedrooms, 1 full bath. Air conditioning throughout. Full sized, well stocked kitchen. Ample indoor & outdoor space. Pool & sun deck are just steps from your back deck . Ideal location; one minute walk to the lagoon , 3 minutes to the famous Sidewalk and the Sea. Full-service tour operator with golf cart/kayak/bike rentals is next door. A coffee shop and grocery store are less than a two minute walk away.

The space
Tons of space; 900 square feet indoors and 600 square feet of outdoor living space with two large covered balconies each with dining tables and chairs.

Year-round pool and sundeck with loungers are available for use as well as large gas BBQ grill.

A spacious, well equipped kitchen with large tile countertops is ideal for families and friends interested in preparing their own meals or for just hanging out.

There is air conditioning in each bedroom and the living room. Also ceiling fans in every room if you want to keep the windows open and get a breeze.

One bedroom has a king bed, the other bedroom has a queen bed.
A futon in the living room offers another sleeping option.

Beautiful, lush landscaping with tropical plants and fruit trees including banana and mango trees, surround the property.

Two bedroom rentals within Placencia Village are in short supply, with even fewer rentals having access to a pool to help you stay cool in the tropical heat. This house is in a relatively quiet part of the village, but still within minutes of all of the village amenities. No car or golf cart is needed to get around unless you really wanted to explore out of the village.

Guest access
You will have access to the entire second floor of the house with covered front and back balconies, the pool, and the sundeck area. There is a private outdoor staircase to enter the second floor at the front of the house. You'll share an outdoor staircase with the third floor occupants (us!) if entering by the rear of the house. A gas BBQ grill on ground floor is also available for your use. There is also an outdoor shower and pool bathroom with a keypad that you will have access to.

Other things to note
The daily rate includes the 9% Belize Hotel Tax that is charged on all short-term rentals (less than 6 months).

We are certified by the Belize Tourism Board as a Gold Standard accommodation so we are able to host foreign travelers.

If you are traveling with friends and family, Driftwood Gardens Guesthouse also has a one bedroom apartment and a studio apartment that are available to rent. They are also listed on airbnb.

Location

Placencia, Stann Creek District, Belize

Driftwood Gardens Guesthouse is located towards the top of Placencia Village. Placencia Village is very much a tourist beach destination, but also truly a working village. The village is totally walkable. The neighborhood is very friendly, and full of locals, tourists, and expats. There are lots of children who you'll see walking to school every morning. People take pride in their properties and the village as a whole, and are always doing little projects to keep things looking nice.

We moved to Belize in 2017 from New Jersey to enjoy year-round sun, sea, and warm weather. After years of research and reconnaissance, working multiple jobs and saving as much as possible, we finally dropped our old life, quit those jobs, and moved to Belize. We chose Placencia as our paradise, and bought this guesthouse within weeks of arriving. Since then we have enjoyed adapting to the “Barefoot Perfect” lifestyle of the village. We love living in this warm community full of friendly faces and being within walking distance of everywhere we need to go. Phil’s passion is health and fitness and appreciates being active outdoors year-round. While enjoying all the perks that Belize offers, he has not totally abandoned his prior career path and still works remotely as a physical therapist. Megan dabbles in real estate, indulges her creative side by writing a blog (Real Life Recess) and crafting, and is also a superb source of information on expat life, village happenings, and unique experiences. We live onsite on the top floor of the guesthouse. We are always available to answer questions, assist with recommendations, and ensure your stay is as relaxing and memorable as possible . Please feel free to approach us at any time!
